          The owner is meant for the hospitality business. No fuss just genuine top notch service and welcome. No requests for likes on Facebook and reviews on TripAdvisor. Good solid motel, no frills. Would recommend.

          An older, tired establishment, OK for a night. It was clean, bed was fine. The pool was lovely, and the Bar B Q area was nice to relax in. Owner was a nice chap. No Sky, only Freeview. Would we stay again, sure.
